    Sims 3 Will Be Out In February 2009

    During EA's press conference in Leipzig earlier this morning, it was announced that the game destined to sell a gagillion copies - The Sims 3 - has a firm release date. And that date's February 20, 2009. That's a global, simultaneous release as well, mind you, just in case you're in Europe and were going to bug us about that in the comments section.

    The Sims 3 coming in February

    Interestingly, EA also announced that in addition to being released to retailers, the game will be made available as a digital download the same day. Additionally, the game will be getting the collector's edition treatment, with a version that includes the game, a Sims USB drive, exclusive in-game Italian sports car, Sims stickers, and a hint book.

    The Sims 3 will look to improve on its predecessor with an expanded create-a-character mode, a new open neighborhood to explore, and a new goal system, with both long- and short-term goals. The game will also finally allow players to customize items, such as furniture or clothing, to their liking.

    With Spore set to be released in September, it looks like EA is trying to put a bit of breathing room between its two gigantic PC franchises. For those with plans to play both, this is indeed a good thing.

    Re: Sims 3 Will Be Out In February 2009

    One after and while we had had more new past few weeks, The Sims 3 are revealed in two new videos and many screenshots. Side videos, we take a new trailer, but especially a small making-of rather nice through which developers are returning to the creation of the game.

    Later catch is once again the variety of situations is put forward: people very different from each other, many environments and accessories of all kinds should allow this third opus stand out clearly from the previous two. For the latest news, leaving the game Maxis / Electronic Arts is still scheduled for next February.
